Boating on the lake is enjoyable. separate area for rowing and motor boat is very thoughtful.picturesque lake. it need to be cleaned a bit. the complex at the boat club has good entertainment for kids and the food court is okay.

Ooty lake is by far the best tourist spot in Ooty city. Pedal boats, motor boats and row boats are available for boating here.

However, this spot needs maintenance. From both govt. side as well as from tourists' side. People throw all kinds of garbage here and there and as a result lake has become filthy. It badly needs cleaning.

Also, safety precautions need to be followed sincerely. Life jackets are available abundantly, but nobody wears it. The staff there also doesn't bother about it.

You'll find groups of people coming here from buses (30-40) and that'll surely make the place noisy. Not at all comforting for those looking for lake side peace and serenity. But once you are in boat and away, you forget all that and enjoy the beauty.

So, this is a must visit place in Ooty. Do take the boat ride as water is not filthy all around the lake. Also, there is a toy train for kids nearby just in case they are bored.

This is a nice lake at the centre of the Ooty. There is a prepaid counter to book boat ride. Boat ride was great option to relax after hectic tour of botanical garden.
